Fresh Herbs Quiz

I am growing them in a semi-shady bed in my backyard.  Some I grew for smell and some for taste. You guess– which are for smell and which are for taste?

There are a few I am still wanting to buy this summer.

  • French Tarragon
  • Flat Leaf Parsley
  • Chervil
  • Lavender
  • Fennel
  • chamomile
  • Dill
  • variegated sage
  • mint  (Dare I?)
  • 20 other varieties of Scented geraniums
  • rosa rugosa  (for the rose hips)

See my dilemma?  The sun loving and  larger growing herb bed, where to put them? I use so much cilantro that it does not seem smart to grow it myself, plus it bolts ( goes to seed) in the heat.




Help is this a WEED?


I have been  watching this oddball plant grow. It is in the onion/garlic family. I know because it smells like that. I waited for the flower to blossom, wondering if it was one of those fancy decorative flowers in this family. Not pretty at all!

Look at the odd leaf structure? it looks like a cross between a leek’s leaf and corn stalks? IT is really tall 3 ft maybe?

Help do you know what it is? re-post of facebook and ask your friends–
